How To Integrate SMF Forum With Your PTC Site ?
« on: October 14, 2011, 04:58:36 AM »
- Original Poster of this idea is our members Omega C. and rights are reserved to him
- This is for aurora based sites but idea can be modified for other sites too
- The integration works only on SMF 1.1.x series as the current api is for it , for SMF 2 there's no official api yet , but there's some modified one i'm testing now
- Here are the details :

1) Download SMF api file from here : http://download.simplemachines.org/?tools
file named : SMF 1.1.x API

2) Upload it to the directory called forum in your site cpanel where you have the SMF forum installed

3) Find this file : members/join.php ( take a backup copy of it first )
find this line :
Code: [Select]
$sql=$Db1->query("UPDATE stats SET new_members=new_members+1 WHERE date='$today_date'");

add after it :
Code: [Select]
// smf api   
$username = $_POST['uUsername'];
$email = $_POST['uEmail'];   
$passwd = $_POST['uPassword'];
require_once("forum/smf_1-1_api.php");
         smf_registerMember($username, $email, $passwd, $extra_fields = array(), $theme_options = array());   
// api end         

4) Find this file : members/login.php ( take a backup copy of it first )
find this line :
Code: [Select]
header("Location: setcookies.php?".iif(isset($returnTo),"view=$returnTo","view=account&ac=main")."".iif("$id","&id=$id").iif($ptype,"&ptype=$ptype").iif($step,"&step=$step")."".iif(isset($ac),"&ac=$ac")."&sid=$sessid&sid2=$sessid2&siduid=$userid");

add after it :
Code: [Select]
// smf api               
include_once ("forum/smf_1-1_api.php");
$cookiename = $smf_settings['cookiename'];
$username = $form_user;
$password = $form_pwd;
unset($_COOKIE[$cookiename]);
smf_setLoginCookie(3600, $username, $password, $encrypted = false);
smf_authenticateUser();               
// smf api end     


5) find this file : public_html/logout.php ( it will be in home directory , back it up  )
find the following line :
Code: [Select]
$Db1->sql_close();

add after it :
Code: [Select]
include_once ("forum/smf_1-1_api.php");
$cookiename = $smf_settings['cookiename'];
$username = $_POST['username'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
setcookie($cookiename);
smf_setLoginCookie(3600, $username, $password, $encrypted = false);
smf_authenticateUser();

- That's all now the forum is integrated to your site  :)

You can't install it from there , It needs to be manually installed
Download it from here : http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?archive;version=67 ( SMF 1.1.16 - install ) then upload it to your forum directory and remove all previous forum related files , Then do the install either on new database or current smf database

Integration guide is free as i posted it above , You would only pay if you asked a coder to do it for you that's all 2 or 3$ max
